This list of anonymous "Unpopular opinions too unpopular for Twitter" is great reading

“No-one gives a shit about your birthday”

By now, you’ll have seen the ‘unpopular opinion’ meme - someone on Twitter says something like “Unpopular Opinion: Food Edition” and then people reply with wacky things like “Pineapple on pizza is great!” and everyone has a big laugh. It’s quite funny, sometimes.

Anyway, it’s sort of reached an end point now - all the unpopular opinions have been expressed, and there is nowhere to go. Unless of course, you count the things that people wanted to say, but were too embarrassed to put their name to. The unpopular opinions too unpopular for Twitter.

The dark stuff. The real meat.

And it makes for great reading. Of course, many people have not understood the call-out and have simply responded with not-at-all embarassing opinions like the aforementioned “PINEAPPLE PIZZA GREAT LOL”, but there are a great deal of other good ones on the list. 

Here are 20 that stand out (we’re definitely not saying we agree or disagree with any of them - probably best to get that straight):

If you’re a “take me as I am” person, then you’re a cunt.

You, putting your hat over your face because you’ve got such terrible opinions, and then going onto the spreadsheet and writing “Trilbys are cool”

Craft ale is mostly bollocks and gives you the shits, lager is quite often better

People who self-identify as writers are insufferable.

Memes mean I find it impossible to relate to anyone over like 25

All films with horses in are rubbish

With every new ‘Unpopular Opinion: X Edition’ tweet, the word ‘Unpopular’ morphs further into ‘Lazy, Obvious Crowd-Pleaser’. “Unpopular Opinion: Food Edition” “Ooh! Ooh! Me! Me! I prefer bacon to fois gras!!!”

Love Island think pieces are boring

“Pizza is bad” and “Beatles are overrated” aren’t unspeakably unpopular opinions. They’re just opinions. Get over yourself.

Not everything to do with Brexit is bad.

Hayfever is made up by weak people to excuse them from actual work.

Automatic gearboxes are better

However, if the look of a spreadsheet understandably fills you with dread, then Rob is in the process of creating a bot that will tweet out the opinions too:

So stay tuned for that when it’s ready, and you can follow and finally, anonymously, reveal your terrible secret - an opinion that nobody has ever expressed before: “I… like… pizza… with… pineapple.”
